Soloable if prepped

I soloed this guy as a MNK30/WAR15. Equips were: Cougar Baghnakhs, Attar of Roses, Compound Eye Circlet, Reraise Earring, Mercenary's Gi, Battle Gloves, Windurstian Ring, Emperor Band, Purple Belt, Mercenary's Sitabaki, Mercenary's Kyahan. I had a Hi-Potion +1 that I didn't end up using. I prepared ahead of time by fighting a bunch of monsters to build up 300% TP. Boosted 3 times, used Dodge and Focus before spawning. Spawned Forger, hit Combo, then used Hundred Fists until it died. Might have used a second Combo in there. Can't remember for sure. Over all, pretty easy fight, though I probably wouldn't have won or at least would have needed my Potion without Hundred Fists.
Not hard at lvl 49

Just soloed as a 49thf/24nin, not hard at all. He only hit me 3 times...but each hit was for around 80 hp. Fight took a couple mins but pretty easy overall. Much easier than the guardian treant.

i just soloed this as a 36 galka mnk/dnc decently equipped. it was hitting me for 90-100 but would miss from time to time and the healing waltz was only healing 69 so i was falling behind in the healing slowly. i started with 300 tp. at first i was worried about losing my pop item but then it berserked so i thought i'd be dead fast so i hit hundred fists and it was over in about 15 seconds. got my bomb steel, gonna try the tree one next once i get my 2hr back. got 50 exp for it.

I just did this for two people as SMN49/WHM24.
Ifrit: Crimson Howl, then Double Punch (did around 578).

After Double Punch, he just smacked the mob around a few more times and it was over.

I buffed the party of 3 with Stoneskin, Hastega, Aerial Armor, Protect 1, Shell 1, and Barfira. All of it was up at the end of the fight, nothing had dropped or been used up. Nobody got hit. No cures were needed. Was at half mp at the end of the fight due to using the two Bloodpacts and about 15 seconds of keeping Ifrit out. Cake. I think the damage done by the two level 30 friends in the party was negligable compared to Ifrit, so i count this as being solo.

I didn't know how hard this guy would be, but I've had Samarai flagged for quite awhile. So I decided to go and get this guy tonight as a 46 war/23 whm.

This guy was easy, though he was hitting me for 10-75 Hp everytime. He would've been easier but I was worried about an Earth Elemental kickin it behind me when I was fighting him. Needless to say that 2 Raging Axes and 1 Divine Seal/Cure 2(just in case the Earth Elemental decided to join in) he was dust. And out came my Bomb Steel, and actually got 20 exp for this!

I gave myself a Cure 3, with Regen waited til I had 60 mp and 600 Hp(only 2/3rds of full on both) and got up, smoked the Earth Elemental in about 30 secs and got 2 Earth Clusters. The Earth Elemental did only 20 points of damage to me, no biggie Regen made it appear as if he didn't even touch me. Took my happy **** outta there passed by a 30 war/Nin got her back up to full health, and went back to Basty happy.

I'd say that at least a 44 war/22 whm should be able to solo this. I soloed this and the only trouble I had was wondering weither or not if I cast anything if the Elemental was going to aggro. So indeed at least a 44 should be able to solo this. Maybe a 41-42 if you have Mighty Strikes ready to go and a few of cure 2's or hi potions, but you still might need a pl in case things go wrong.

I had 820 Hp to start off and even with shield he did 700 hp of damage to me. Also I didn't have anything up on me except Regen to start off the match, just Protect and Shell 1. And I didn't cast anything on him. Just straight melee on him.

Just don't underestimate how hard he hits, cuz though he's a wuss in taking damage he can dish it out.

solo'ed him as a 41drg/20whm. Used a boiled crayfish for added def. Buffed before fight protect, shell, aquaveil, blink, then rested to get my mp back. while i was resting the earth elemental spawned so i stood up and killed it which didnt even hit me once so all it did was boost my tp. Then fully healed and with about 60%tp from the earth elemental traded the steel thing to the ??? forger spawned pretty easy fight. Got scary for a second cuz he was hitting pretty hard and i wasnt spamming dia fast enough. He got me down to 90hp once but after that i started spamming dia a lil better worked mp hp to about 230ish had 100tp used double thrust which landed for 300dmg forger dies. I had 91mp left so i could have kept fighting for a while. i used double thrust twice. never even used jump or highjump actually i save them to interupt casting but all he cast was berserk so between that and my spamming dia never used my jumps. Easy fight for a drg this level just dont get scarred when ur hp gets low and id recomend dia for healing breath as cure takes to long to cast. And i didnt use my 2hr btw.

I just solo'd this guy as 58BLM and I can asure you he is fire weak, not fire strong. I took him easy Fireaga II did 513 dmg while Blizzaga II did 285! I had to use my 2hr only because I wasted MP on Ice magic (thanx Ala). Otherwise it was a very easy fight. Even with BLM's low def. he was only hitting for 30-40 dmg a hit, kept stoneskin up as much as possible but not needed 100% of the time so I let him get a couple in. Hopw this helps, 100% Fire WEAK!

I have had the 2 items for SAM quest in my inv for months now ( i flagged it while in Norg for Ninja Scrolls) well last night i was bored and about to logg and decided to cruise by and take Stray Mary if I could, then go see what kinda trouble Forger would be to a RNG43/NIN21. Well, i get to the ??? and Utsusemi'd up and ate a Rice Dumplin. Spawned him and after my shadows dropped, he starts hittin me for 100~130. Since RNG HP is gimp in the first place, i started to freak out so I Barraged for about 400ish and his HP bar moved slightly... had a few hits on him and all he had lost was maybe 10%, by this time, i was down to about 266/686 so was like all right, imma die. So i EES'd him and he dropped. O.o I look at my log and it shows my shot hit him for 1360 ... O.O

I'm all freakin out and like /l OMG!!! 1360 EES
XD well anyway.. he is easy if you can take a beating. Good Luck

This thing was pretty simple. Fought him as a RDM43/NIN21 and beat him pretty easy, I did have my lvl 30 NPC with me too. This thing hits kinda hard but nothing too major, just keep Stoneskin and Utsusemi up. Took me down to 1/2 hp because I got tired of casting spells. I finshed it off and got 13 exp from it. :)

For quite some time I had my Samurai Quest active, and was waiting till I was high enough to solo Forger, and the Guardian Treant. \

Last night I had hit level 44 in Western Altepa, and was doing some random questing today, so I grabbed my SAM quest items just in case I found someone willing to help me with these NMs.

Since I had to go through Konschtat Highlands to get to Selbina from Jeuno, I thought to myself: "heck, I'll attempt Forger, and warp out if my pet starts getting beat down". Well, I called out a Funguar Familiar and started killing things, to accumulate TP, till my pet and me were sitting at 300%TP. I was pondering on wether or not to call my NPC helper, but, I didn't, so I could save her as a last resort, in case 2 of my Jugs died to Forger.

Well, I headed to Forger's spawn point (D-8), traded the Oriental Steel to the ??? marking, and immediately set my 300%TP Funguar Familiar on Forger. I did the same, so I could empty my 300%TP, too. Well, my Funguar used a Frog Kick for massive damage, and I used my WS for some extra damage, taking the Forger down to like 20% health, lol! A few seconds later, Forger lay wasted and I had acquired my Bomb Steel for SAM Quest!

Definitely a joke for any BST 40+.

Heading my way to Zi'tah to solo the other NM, cya!

This fight is fairly easy if you are a thief and you use your 2-hr. I traded the oriental steel to the "???" and used Hide right after that. Snuck behind Forger and used Sneak Attack, did about 275, and just used 2-hr right away; used Berserk as soon as I 2-houred, soloed it fairly easily, from 732 HP to 323. Now on to the Guardian Trent....

Many NMs have power comparable to monsters 5-10 levels higher than the NM's actual level. In reality, this monster is probably more comparable to a lv. 43 bomb.
I liked Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. And I'm not at all ashamed to admit it.

VERY easy. Used one Cure III and I Flashed him when he did Berserk. Had a Yagudo Drink just in case but I definitely didn't need it.

I just solo'ed this as my WHM54.

I expected it to be a breeze with me being 21 levels higher, but this proved quite the challenge. It ripped through my MP at the speed of Knots, and it hit me for around 70 or so a time.

Keeping Enfeebs up and using the light staff proved a good investment. Now to do the sodding tree >.>;

I went solo and fought this sucker.

How I did it:
2-hour beginning of fight which made our hp equal for the 1st half of our life than 2 hour went off and he started to kick **** for a bit but than I used a X-Potion which recovered 150HP. After that both of us were near death when Forger got me to 79hp than I used Sturmwind for 525 damage! I defeated him.

Went in as a WAR43/MNK without food(It would of probably been better if I used food...)

Solo'd this today as a 43mnk/21war. I summoned my NPC character to help (only second time I've used). Ate some squid sushi, used dodge and focus. Ended battle with 308/977hp. Not to hard of a battle, even got 19 exp out of it.

Hope this helps

Took him on the other day as a Dragoon 45/war.
Had a rdm their to help cause someone in the ls advised against me soloing it.

At 45 with 300%tp this guy coped a nice 511 double thrust. Then polished him off with some normal hits and Jump and High jump.

I was very appreciative of the mage being there, but i think you could easily do this solo at this level. Build 300%tp first to be safe.

I don't have any great equipment, and i was using Meat Jerky cause i didn't bother with a Mithakabob. was hitting for around 150-170 each hit. Pretty straightforward fight.

Hope it helps to those who want to solo it

I then had to go back, buy a darksteel ore and get my 60 drk and 60 whm friends (Jman and Cheli) and Forger was hitting Jman for ~50 each hit) I dont know how a lvl 40 bst beat it...

Soloed it at level 40 BST a couple weeks ago. It was really easy. The other SAM quest mob was a lot harder in comparison. For this mob, I'm not sure if I had to use pet food on my crab familiar, but I'm pretty sure I meleed alongside on the 2nd pet. That was a bad idea in retrospect, since bombs have that evil self destruct move.

I did not know that a NM was going to spawn here when i traded the item to the ???. Nor did i know this was the SAM flag quest. Anyways i am a DRK40/WAR20, i had 10 mp of 180. and dam near full helth, what can i say i used 2-hr, and did not phase him at all. He kept hitting me for at least 90 DMG. I might of got him down to 75% hp , not sure though, i was trying not to die, i had a warp schroll on me and used it at 160 hp left. just as the schroll activated, he did a critical over 100 dmg and i died as soon as i warped back to Juneo my hp ><.Gonna try again today

I had one **** of a time soloing this guy as a 50RDM/BLM. Stoneskin would wear within 3-4 hits, and after that, I'd get pummeled for nearly 50 dmg.

I ended up beating him, but without much MP or HP left. I also had to {Stoneskin} + {Convert} to keep refresh my MP.

My advice to any other RDM attempting to solo this? Keep Blink & Stoneskin up the entire time. It may be a slow fight, but going at it any other way leaves you with a huge chance of being embarassed by a level 33 NM.

Tried soloing this for a friend. As a 60 BLM all enfeebles were resisted, and all of my spells were resisted for more than half. I was taking 50-60 damage a hit and ended up Manafont > Warp IIing my friend before eating dirt...

Last night on the Fairy server my friend and I took this guy. Party setup was as follows:

Galka MNK30/WAR15
Galka WHM30/SMN14 (I know, I know, I'm levelling it.)

Anyhow, MNK used 2H and beat the **** out of it. It wasn't a very long fight, but Forger was hitting him for around 110-120 damage. I was having to spam on Cure III, and the fight ended with me having 1 mp left and the MNK having around 220 HP, with me standing close by with Benediction ready just incase. So, yes it can be done at level 30 with just 2 people, and man it was one **** of a rush too.

NOTE: Between all of his gear and food, my MNK friend has a +19 STR, which probably helped quite a bit. I have Astrals and Galka RSE and such, bringing my MP total to around 350.

I just tryed to solo Forger as a lvl 38 bst/19 whm.. only reason why I tried is because I had an instant warp scroll with my HP in Norg.. and there wasn't anyone on I knew at 3:30am to try and help.. I brought a Courier Carrie and a Homonuculus with me.. and unfortunately forgot food, which may have won me the fight.. Let's just say, Carrie got her *ss kicked, but I had let my timer run down before starting the fight, so as soon as she dropped, I called Homonuculus.. at this point Forger still had 75% of his HP and had already Berserked.. so he was taking off about 120.. because of Homon's high evade and counter, it was actually even at 35%.. Homon's TP hit 100+ so I used Sic, hoping for a good WS.. and I get Scream, which did nothing.. suffice it to say, at this point I started running.. I was hoping to find something to charm, but then remembered it's worthless because Highland mobs would die in 1 hit.. and my Call Beast timer was still at 3min 30 secs.. Forger got close enough for me to see how much HP he had left.. about 10% and he began to heal, I figured, throw Dia on him so his HP won't go back up.. WRONG IDEA.. within 3 hits my HP were down to 65 and I was running like crazy.. luckily this thing is slow so I managed to distance enough to stop aggro and make it to the Crag to hop on a choco.. so I ride back over to see if he's still there.. and he is, sitting all smug in his cave.. so I tried shouting and /tell any high levels in the area.. but no response and Forger disappeared.. :( Next time I'm bringing 2 Alchemist's Water or some help..
A little tougher than I thought

Expecting an easy fight, I was surprised when I started taking 80-90 per hit. Of course as a level 45 monk I have a whopping 127 defense. But still...

It was very close, but probably wouldn't have been if I'd taken some time to build up tp before the battle.

Got real bored tonight so I decided to take a walk to Norg and start this quest. Let me tall you something I asked a few LS memebers for a little help, because I didn't know how tough this guy would be. Really no one was on so I soloed this guy with the greatest ease. Killed with-in 45 seconds with my 43 mnk/war. I ended with about 675/913 HP.
This guys a joke and I'm still laughing.

I did this as a 35 paladin and a 37 white mage backing me up. It was a long fight no DD'ing involved just my handy Hunting Sword and a few debuffs from the whitemage. Spent most of the time healing me, but if i can kill this with only a tank and a healer then a 40 paladin could solo this. But paladins make awesome solo'ers. Just a thought of a 33 nm being beaten by a 35 paladin and a 37 whitemage, which means that it would be cake for a 42+. I guess it kinda depends on your job also. Well may everyone be as fortunate as myself on this fight. This guy is really a pushover.

I just soloed this as a SMN41/WHM20. Carbuncle eats Bombs for breakfast.

Summon the little squirrel before you trade the steel, and Carbuncle will automatically engage the Forger once it spawns. Run far away, and resummon Carbuncle whenever he dies.

I started with 775 MP, and when the Forger finally died (it didn't self-destruct), I had about 400 MP left. This is after I consumed a Pineapple Juice at about the halfway point, just to be safe.
